IL Radio: Restraining Order Against WRPW Reporter Dismissed

A Bloomington, Illinois employee has dropped a petition for a stalking "no contact" order filed against a Twin City radio host.

In late May, Nora Dukowitz had asked that Josh Schmidgall with WRPW Cities 92.9 FM in Normal be barred from threatening or stalking her at her home or at her City Hall office where she works as the city's communications manager.

The order signed by Associate Judge David Butler does not state a reason for the dismissal.

Chris Gramm, lawyer for Schmidgall, had earlier filed a motion seeking the dismissal. Gramm said Thursday that he did not think Dukowitz's petition was sufficient to obtain such an order.

Dukowitz said last month that she sought the order after the radio reporter showed up at her home unannounced when she was home sick. She said she has had previous problems with Schmidgall recording her without her permission when the two met at City Hall.

The legal action was filed by Dukowitz as a private citizen and she covered any legal expenses.
